Liberty State Park this morning began its summer program of free kayak eco-tours of the surrounding Hudson River Estuary. The tours, which are about two hours, highlight the many birds and other wildlife that call the waters home and focus on their habitats.
No paddling experience is necessary to take part, but you’ll need to be comfortable being out in somewhat deep waters. The tours are open to adults and children over 16, but those under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.
Tours embark from the canoe/kayak launch located at the south side of Liberty State Park, near the park office, and they highlight the local wildlife and habitats of Caven Point. All trips are from approximately 10 am to noon (participants are asked to arrive at 9:30 am) and include a brief safety and paddle instruction.
Pre-registration is required; to do so, contact the Liberty State Park Interpretive Center at 201-915-3400 or lspic (at) verizon.net and provide the date you are interested in, your name, age (if under 18), email and a phone number at which you can be reached in the event of program cancellation. You will receive a confirmation, directions and any further information at that time. Since the program is free, you’re only allowed to register for one kayak trip each summer.
